Develop and Conduct a National Annual Safe Boating Campaign.
The Coast Guard seeks a grantee to develop and conduct the year 2006 National Annual Safe Boating Campaign that targets specific boater market segments and recreational boating safety topics. This year-round campaign must support the organizational objectives of the Recreational Boating Safety Program and the nationwide grassroots activities of the many volunteer groups who coordinate local media events, education programs, and public awareness activities, as well as complement the Coast Guard "You're in Command" campaign. The major focus of the campaign will be to affect the behavior of all boaters with special focus on boat operators being resonsible for their own safety as well as the safety of their passengers. A significant emphasis should be placed on life jacket wear, safety and security issues, and the dangers of carbon monoxide, as well as boating under the influence of alcohol or a dangerous drug. Efforts will also be coordinated, year-round, with other national safety activities and special media events. Point of Contact: Ms. Jo Calkin, (202)267-0994.
